STEP INSIDE A hardwood front door takes you in to the entrance porch where there is a window to the side with panoramic sea and estuary views. A glazed inner door leads in to the attractive square shaped inner hallway where there are turning stairs to the first floor and there is a cloaks cupboard.
The lovely bright living room has a triple aspect with the main south easterly facing window commanding panoramic views of the sea, Teignmouth back beach, Ness, Shaldon beach and estuary. There is also a door to the rear patio and garden.
The kitchen has a window to the rear with sea views and a partly glazed door to the side. It comprises wooden fronted base and wall units with a work top, tiled splash backs and a stainless steel sink unit with waste disposal unit.

The house was individually built in 1974 for the current owners and hasn't changed hands since. It has been well looked after but requires some updating now. Most windows are uPVC double glazed but a few are the original crittall windows with sealed unit double glazed panes. There are central heating radiators in all rooms but it was an oil fired system and the oil fired boiler is no longer working. We understand that it is possible to bring gas in from the road.
STEP OUTSIDE At the front, wrought iron double gates give access to a level driveway which leads to the integral garage.
By the garage there is a store room with power and light.
The garage has a metal up and over door, frosted glazed side and rear windows and a door to the rear. At the back there is a sink unit, plumbing for washing machine and work bench. The oil boiler is housed here but is no longer working. The garage has power and lighting.
There is a front lawned garden and a crazy paved path and patio. Steps with iron railings lead to the front door where there is an exterior light. Pathways lead along both sides of the house to the rear.
At the rear there is a paved terrace with corner iron railings. There is a level lawn and a lower area previously used as a vegetable patch and a paved area behind the garage.

SELLER'S INSIGHT "Arwen" has been our family home since we purchased the plot and had the house built in 1974.
We have loved living in Yannon Drive and enjoyed the convenience of the layout of our home with its magnificent views. Looking out to the Ness and the sea beyond there is always something different to see. Coasters coming and going to and from the Docks, dinghy sailing competitions, fishing and pleasure boats going around the Point, Shaldon regatta etc. More recently it has been wonderful to see the illuminated Cruise Liners moored off Teignmouth during the Lockdown. Most years it has been exciting to watch the Red Arrows display from our lounge and bedroom. Other bedrooms look towards Shaldon Bridge and the river Teign and beyond.
Sadly, I reluctantly must accept it is time to downsize. I trust that the future owners will treasure the house as much as our family has.
